richer itself by selling to these countries. by the 1870the united states and germany in particular have been so successful that they are now becoming rivals. so it's basically the more successful britain is in doing its job as global cop the more it creates rivals which will prevent it from doing its job as global cop. in the 1870starts to become clear this is happening and no one is directly challenging british authority over this global system but the 40 years after that in the 1910s people are looking at britain's position saying it's not clear to us anymore that britain really has the strength to keep running this global system. may be resorting to violence is no longer the worst possible option for us and of course particulaparticula rly an influential faction the government in germany increasingly a saying we have terrible strategic problems crafted in russian camps or perhaps all the violence will be the solution to these problems. with consequences of course that we all know well. it seems to me since at least 1989 the u.s. has been running the system which while it's different

with japan ended i was on a cruise ship bound for germany and was ordered to go down into the hold of the ship from gambling. i had no idea there were any bikes on the step, this went on until i became a security policeman in germany and was called up, a shootout for black american soldiers partly because there were many german girls who love to date black soldiers and there were many white soldiers in an outbreak here. in germany we spent a year, wasn't experienced the first time and introduced me to a racial issue. and there was also the holocaust of course. and some many survivors and protected them going into the streets. summery called truckload after truckload of survivors. i was opened up to a lot of new things. and to go to college i was very much interested in the racial issue even though i failed to take part in the actable civil rights movement, i read their wasn't anything, when i was in graduate school or hovered, very distinguished historian from berkeley, and teach at harvard and the fire department and we became good things -- good friends. he was about to publish a
to a close. >> since the economic crisis of 2009 five years ago, germany has been the driving force of the european union's economic policy. from the size, terms, and timing of bailouts for members to the depth and pace of european economic integration. on the eastern front, germany's caution and confronting russia has controlled the pace of eu and american sanctions. and tempered nato's response in the front line countries of poland and the baltics. close ties with china give germany a foothold in asia and beijing a line of influence through berlin. in fact, the increase in trade between china and germany particularly in german exports to china, has exceeded all expectations. germany is china's number one trade partner in the eu. and the top investment destination for german companies is china. based on this emerging economic between china and germany, quote, a special relationship, unquote, is now emerging. item. china needs technology and germany needs markets. structural similarities and shared economic interests are key for this emerging special relationship. item, germany's ap
and others. and in germany. >> family members are outraged. they were hurt that these support centers are closing in by a jenning but at some point, an airline has to say, we don't have any more information, right, we have to do this or is this timing particularly bad? >> well, the timing is particularly bad because there is still for the answers where their loved ones are. but in most air crash accidents, certainly all the ones i have worked on, the airline usually closes down its support system and they have a care team assigned member assigned to each family. they cut that off at about day 45 and that's pretty standard and the reason is, that is in most cases, the case is moving on to a different stage, here because they don't have a plane or their loved ones, it's particularly bad timing. it's not unusual to close it down about this point. >> oh, boy, thanks so much to both of you. appreciate it. >> already. the other woman in this clipper owners scandal is talking. what she told barra walters about her relationship with donald sterling and whether she thinks she a racist. first,
the juxtaposition of nazi germany with guernsey's ancient towns in narrow streets yet the channel islands guernsey and jersey alternately with the only pieces of british land captured in acute hide for five long years by the germans. i think we have a little catching up to do here. i will just carry on and we will catch up with it. i notice whenever i'm there that islanders have quite an emphasis on sound, the sound of martial music in their street, the ring of jack boots that echoed off the buildings of their high street and in that there is some sense of violation but also a fascination of this simple incongruity of the whole thing. now what was that oddness that always fascinated me ever since i started visiting guernsey in the 1970s. i was introduced to the island courtesy of my older sister who had the good sense to meet and marry a guernsey man. so i spent many years going back and forth to visit them. we were just going because it was such a beautiful place to visit. i was always struck when i went there gossip and rumor became new means of sending information around the island. they also s
whole hog. more, harder sanctions. others like germany and italy and others are not so sure. it will boomerang back on their economies. >> germany is the key. >> germany is one key. we have chancellor merkel meeting with barack obama. that is the number one topic on their agenda, along with nsa and tapping her phone. >> what did you say last year -- [laughter] >> exactly. he may know what she is thinking. >> let's talk about the effect on american economies. -- companies. is there any consideration to say, get out of russia? >> that's what's happening. they are the ones doing the outreach. i asked if companies are lobbying for less sanctions. the administration responded, we are going to them and asking them to cut their russian exposure. citibank cut their russian exposure nine percent. still $9 billion, but significant. the white house has been lobbying and getting success with major american companies and ceo's were supposed to go to an economic conference sponsored by putin. some are pulling out entirely or reducing their delegations. >> if he keeps escalating, is there
germany, make it hard for them to accept tougher economic sanctions. but this is where you need american leadership. the fact is that what putin has succeeded in doing is using military force to change international boundaries on the continent of europe. and if the europeans don't realize it, that puts them in considerable jeopardy. the european union is still on very shaky foundations when it comes to the monetary union, political tensions are rising. and putin is taking advantage of them. i think this is a very bad time for the western alliances. >> right. and historically, we have seen this happen in the past, going back to world war ii, beginning stages of that. let's go further. what does the united states have to do to show american leadership and intervene in this difficult situation in ukraine and russia? >> well, i think you've got to do two things. number one, you've got to turn up the cost to russia of this belligerent policy its pursuing. if the europeans are serious about wanting peace and stability on the european continent, they've got to risk economic harm to themselves i
-- >> and during the '50s we were all worried that germany and france were going to overtake us. so -- >> may i remind you that -- >> china -- >> they didn't have that problem when everybody was worried about japan overtaking the united states. >> i think, again, you know, our status in the world has dropped many precipitously over the last several decades and anybody that continues to say it's no big deal i think are playing into it. >> it's a fine line beating down our own country -- >> if your kid comes home with a c., are you afraid to say johnny get an a before hurting his feelings? >> middle class person today or in '81? >> in the '50s. >> we have more coming up, believe it or not. >>> did you hear about the new white house plans for our roads? obviously these guys did. >>> live from america's news headquarters. condoleezza rice backs out from giving the commencement address at rutgers university. her invitation sparked protest from some students and faculty over her role in the iraq war. she said she didn't want to be a, quote, distraction" for the community. according to the cdc, a man
to be making much of a difference and now you've got the white house and you've got germany and other members of the european union who are threatening more sanctions. how might that really impact the situation there? >> well, sanctions need to do two things. one, they need to punish the russians for the actions that they've already taken in annexing crimea, illegally, totally unprovoked. the second thing they need to deter the russians from further action. the russians have already gone beyond crimea. they've already sent their special forces into eastern ukraine to stir up trouble, and that's the trouble you're seeing now in eastern ukraine. it is only in eastern ukraine where the russians sent in their special forces that there's any difficulty around that country, around ukraine. the rest of the country is calm. so the sanctions which should go into effect now, the elevated sanctions, the harsher sanctions are necessary now, not waiting for two more weeks. >> the u.s., president obama had been meeting and talking with angela merkel. germany has some leverage in all this, doesn't it? it se

and the future of relations between the u.s. and germany. this is 30 minutes. >> good morning, everybody. it is always a great pleasure to welcome my friend chancellor merkel to the white house. germany is one of our strongest allies and angela is one of my closest partners. with her indulgence, i want to start by making two brief comments. first, as president, my top priority is doing everything we can to create more jobs and opportunity for hard-working families for our economic strength as a source of strength in the world. this morning, we learned our businesses created 277,000 new jobs last month. all told, our business is now created 9.2 million new jobs over 50 consecutive months of job growth. the grit and determination of the american people are moving us forward but we have to keep a relentless focus on job creation and creating more opportunities for work and families. there is plenty more that congress should be doing from raising the minimum wage to creating good construction jobs and rebuilding america. i want to work with them wherever i can but i keep acting on my own whe

merkel because of the relationship that germany has with russia and because the germans are considered so central to bringing the europeans along. and you could see today in the rose garden the struggle that the europeans. you could see it on display. because she said a number of times we will go to the next tier. and she described the trigger for that being the may 25 elections that are scheduled in ukraine. if they're disrupted, if there's a provocation that prevents them from going forward. but she kept saying, but this is not what we want to do. and she also very forcefully indicated that most of the european nations understand at they would be hurt if the energy sector is in the next tranch of serious economic sanctions. because many of the european countries get a majority if not almost all of their oil and gas -- >> it would hit average citizens. >> it would affect the global economy. and president obama has not been secretive about that. he has also indicated that. his body language with chancellor merkel was very conciliatory to this concept. and he actually did volunteer today i

the world is unified. there's real differences about what to do, have germany, and take other members of the european community. >> the eastern europeans. >> charlie: how does the president handle that? does he go off on his own and put troops here and there and do this and that or does he wait and try to get some kind of unified plan? >> i think he needs to do a little more leading from in front. i think he has to do both a major effort to keep the united states and europe together, understanding that the european dependence on russian energy is going to make it tough, and on trade with russia. german trade with russia is huge and ours is tiny. but, on the other hand, the europeans have 60 years of sort of relying on us for leadership in international affairs and particularly on national security, and they are not yet ready to be co-leaders, and i think a little more american leadership on this would have been important, even while we understand and agree with the point he's making. >> charlie: syria. when the president made the decision not to attack syria after having said it had c
